Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door stats and Tattle information[edit]

  • Stats:
  • HP: 5
  • Attack: 3
  • Defense: 4
  • Locations: Glitzville
  • Tattle Log: The sturdiest of all the Buzzy Beetles, a Red Spike Top is impervious to fire and explosions. Plus, the spike on its back protects it from being flipped over.
  • Tattle: That's a Red Spike Top. It's the most well protected of the Buzzy Beetle species. Max HP is 5, Attack is 3, and Defense is a whopping 4. Yup... This guy is HARD! It has really high Defense, and fire and explosions don't hurt it at all. If we can just find a way to flip it over, its underside has Defense of 0... And that spike... What a pain! There's gotta be a way to flip it over...

Field Tattle[edit]

  • "That guy's Spiky Joe. He's a major-leaguer, so we'll see him in the ring. He's super-proud of his hard shell and the pointy spike on top of it. Whatever."
